Dear Lists,

You may be aware that the UK Location Program GEMINI2/INSPIRE metadata
standard is currently only available for GeoNetwork 2.6, which is now quite
old, and that there are no official plans to support later versions on
Geonetwork, as Defra will be moving over to an online-only metadata editor.
My employer, Astun Technology, is considering commissioning a piece of work
to port the GEMINI2 schema to run in GeoNetwork 2.10 onwards. We aim to
make this work available on Github, to allow UK users to take advantage of
the numerous enhancements in the most recent versions of Geonetwork, and
will also prepare us to upgrade again when the new GEMINI3 is released
towards the end of 2014.

Before we start on this, we have a couple of questions:

   1. Beyond achieving GEMINI compatibility with GeoNetwork do you have any
   other suggestions or requirements? Speak up now as this is a good
   opportunity to get them included in our plans.
   2. Would your organisation be interested in contributing to this project?

Feel free to contact me off-list if you'd prefer.
